Bernie Blackburn asked: “Are they moving it?”
Others wanted to praise the Twitter user’s photography skills, writing “epic image” and “nicely caught”.
However, the image appears to be a product of good angles and perfect timing.
Blackpool Tower isn’t actually being lifted and shifted by a crane; the cranes are actually carrying out work miles away from the tower.
A spokesperson for Blackpool Council said: “It’s just clever photography.
“The cranes are working on the Talbot Gateway development near Blackpool North Station, the Tower is about half a mile away.”
